Although I will miss our regular Thursday night phone calls as we shared for so many years....our bonds will never be broken by the infinite separation between Heaven and Earth. You will be here by us always (like Mom). Thanks for being a great Dad and mentor. So for now, rest easy my dear Father until we cross paths again.

With love and condolences to you all on the recent passing of your dad, John Collins – my Uncle John….

I have such fond childhood memories of time spent with you and your parents. Christmas Eve at 837 N. Delaware Ave. was especially memorable. I’ll never forget your mom and dad – your mom with her bubbly personality, your dad with his booming voice and quirky laugh.

Yes, it’s true that Aunt Pat & Uncle John no longer walk this Earth, but they live forever in the hearts of their family members.

Perhaps we’ll all meet again one day at a Christmas Eve party in the sky! (I promise not to throw up lasagna on the newly carpeted steps this time!)

Papa ...You were so loved. We have been so blessed by your love and care. Thank you for all you have done. Rest in peace knowing that your inspiration and wisdom will be with us and in our hearts and will continue in our life times. It brings me great comfort that you are no longer suffering or in discomfort and sail with the Angels. Until we meet again...
